PLAY BALL! Rhea Butcher (@rheabutcher) kicks off her new weekly baseball podcast with a brief history of life as a baseball fan (and a Cleveland baseball fan at that), including plenty of TBS and heartbreak. Rhea recaps some of the major moves from the MLB OFFSEASON (aka THE HOT STOVE), including the Giancarlo Stanton trade and the Shohei Ohtani signing, and the respective futures of the Yankees and Angels in the American League. Rhea then takes a swing at the saga of CLEVELAND'S (at long last discontinued) RACIST LOGO, discussing the history of "Chief Wahoo," her own personal history with the logo, and the importance of self-correction. And finally, Rhea talks to one of the funniest and nicest guys in comedy, JOSH GONDELMAN, about the moral struggle of reconciling his lifelong New England Patriots fandom with his own personal politics.
